LibriVox recording of A Study in Scarlet, by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Read by Bob Neufeld.
A Study in Scarlet is a detective mystery novel written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, introducing his new character of Sherlock Holmes, who later became one of the most famous literary detective characters. He wrote the story in 1886, and it was published the next year. The book's title derives from a speech given by Holmes to his sidekick Doctor Watson on the nature of his work, in which he describes the story's murder investigation as his "study in scarlet": "There’s the scarlet thread of murder running through the colourless skein of life, and our duty is to unravel it, and isolate it, and expose every inch of it."

Just like in two reviews posted before mine, I gladly say that I love this audio book so much! Mr Bob Neufeld, you did such a wonderful job! I don't say other versions are not good, but this one is my favourite, not to mention that the reader, Bob, is absolutely one of the best audio book readers I ever heard and he is just right for Sherlock Holmes series. I believe I would not be able to resist if he did the rest of the series.
